Would you buy land on mars even if you knew you will never see it and man may not land there for the next half century?

No, I think is a bit stupid. Maybe a big company can buy it. Do you know the laws about selling land there? or just the laws to become an owner? Why NASA can try to sell that? Only because they suppose to be the first one over there? It's enough send on Mars a robot to be the first legal owner of Mars?

It would not be of any interest to me, but I have every confidence that it will sell very well. The same argument applies to land on the moon, and I know several people that have already purchased their little share of the moon. What amazes me is that NASA feel that they have the rights to sell parts of either the moon or Mars. How can NASA claim ownership? If China, Russia or Britain make the same claim, then how could they settle the argument?
